At the festival that happens every year in my area there was a doll booth. (Same booth that I got the cheer leading dress at.) I don’t remember the name, SewSweetness maybe? The dress that I bought was modeled on Lea, as you see here. I loved the leaf pattern, so I asked if I could buy the display one and they said yes. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this dress. It was fifteen dollars, a little more expensive than the other ones priced at twelve, but it was worth it. Just like the cheer leading dress, the quality was amazing. First let’s talk about the hair bow. It is made out of the same material as the shrug, with a loop of fabric matching the dress holding it all together. I think this a great little piece, but what confused me is that there is nothing to hold it on. No ponytail, no bobby pin, no hair clip, no headband. For now I slipped a hairband through it, but I might slide it on a headband later. Now here is the shrug. It is a pale green, a little darker than the pictures show, with lots of white dots. I like how this piece goes with the dress, but will be really fun to mix and match. It’s perfect for spring! The seams are all finished, the shrug is made with a lining, so no hems. This is all that shows from the lining. If they made the lining a different fabric it could be reversible. In fact some of the shrugs they were selling were, but this one wasn’t. Now for my very favorite piece! The dress, It is more like a jumper, the style it is. The pattern is leaves, apple/cherries and acorns. I love this for fall, but it also works for early winter. The straps are thin, but thick enough that dolls don’t have to wear anything over or under it for it to be appropriate.
The skirt is very full, perfectly ruffled. The back opens all the way up for easy dressing.
Overall I LOVE LOVE LOVE this outfit It’s cute, it works with many things, and it was affordable. I give it 7/5 stars. This is a dress that someone will always have on.
When we went to AG Chicago we were going to get Lea’s celebration dress for me. I love that dress. After I tried it on though, we saw this one. Mom asked if I wanted to try it on. I said sure, and we decided we liked this one better. So it came home with us.
I love how it looks, and it is very comfortable. It’s kind of a fancy dress, but I can wear it for school. The ribbon has six plastic and metal jewels on it. I like how it has a little bit of decoration, but not the bows and flowers they always go overboard on. The top layer is a layer of tulle with fabric (I’d call it plether, plastic leather) designs sew on. I love this. It’s so different from what they usually do. It’s light, and it still twirls well. And it is more durable than printed tulle.
The top layer is tulle with plether, the second and third are more tulle, and the fourth is a stretchy cloth, like legging or T shirt cloth. A metal *AMERICAN GIRL tag is sewn on.
I like how they did the zipper. It shows, but it is easy to zip and unzip. It is metal instead of plastic, which is a plus.
The sleeves are tulle cap sleeves. I made my sister take a picture of me in the dress, so you could see what it looks like models. (The leggings are just because I was already wearing them, and didn’t want to take them off.)
I love this dress. I would wear it every day if I could. I give it 4.99/5
For Easter I got the My Twin Blooming Flower Dress and girl dress plus some shoes. I am going to review those things in this post. I put the dress on to model it, and it was a lot of fun, even though I am going to have to take it off here in a minute. I decided not to wear it for Easter, but it is a nice dress, and I am going to wear it a lot. Here is Lea in the whole outfit. She is also wearing a pink pearl bracelet and pink hair clip. The dress is made of white satiny cloth, with a pink sash made of the same material. The front has embroidered hearts and stems, like a garden. The skirt is nicely gathered, there is a lot of cloth. The sleeves are puffy, with a band. The sash doesn’t go all the way to the back, but a bow of the same cloth is sewn onto the back. The dress opens all the way to the skirt, but it was extremely hard to get on. It took me awhile. Girls the age the products are directed at would not be able to get the dress on without help. The dress has a slip, and mesh on top of that. It is sewn in place but to have it as a slip might be nice. Lea can sit well in the dress. The shoes are pink leather like material with a pink ribbon bow on each shoe. They are slip on shoes, very easy to get on, but they stay on. The sole is white, with a bit of heal. Here is me in my dress and lea in hers. Nether the dress nor sash is the same cloth or color. The girls dress isn’t shiny, but it will hold up better. The heart garden is the same, still embroidered. In the girls dress the sash goes all the way around and ties.
All of the things were less than 20$ all together, a great deal for the quality of the items. They are well made, and I am glad I got them.
